“Beautiful but pricy”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Amenities in the room were stunning as was the view of the harbor. Staff was very personable. Parking was quite expensive. Room service for breakfast for 1 omelet and coffee 48 dollars plus tuo seemed quite extravagant.

Hello,
Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. I am surprised to hear that, while you gave us top marks in most areas, you felt your stay was low-rated overall. As your point out, our luxury hotel boasts many "stunning" amenities, including water views and a top-notch staff. Our valet parking is competitively priced for Boston, as is our in-room dining service. Thank you, again, for your comments.

Warm Regards,
Jennifer Zajac

Saturday and Sunday nights at the Fairmont, in the heart of the North End. A real jewel, hidden against the bay, divided into four buildings.
On our arrival, we were escorted to our room by a very warm welcoming Rashida.
I was impressed by their security systems, and really impressed by the Nespresso machine in the room.
The room itself had a king-sized bed, an ocean view, and an over-sized bath room with separate stalls for shower and toilet.
I half expected Brahmin stuffiness, but instead got down home New England comfort.

Highly recommend the Fairmont Battery Wharf. I stay there often. It is relatively new, or maybe super well maintained. Rooms always very clean. Staff is friendly and exceptionally helpful. Location of the hotel is great, as it is near the North End as well as downtown. Great view of Boston Harbor as well. Prices seem competitive.

Room Tip: Two buildings. Both seem fine.

The Fairmont Battery Wharf is one of the very best hotels in Boston and my personal favorite. Located in the North End, the location is perfect -- whether it is a business trip or family vacation. The facilities are wonderful -- upscale, tasteful and luxuriously comfortable. But great hotels are all about the staff and service .... and the Fairmont Battery Wharf team is truly outstanding.

Here you meet real people who are naturally passionate about friendly and professional customer service. Whether it is Khaled at the Front Door, Ryan at the Front Desk or so many more, all these people show the "beyond the script" hospitality that makes for memorable stays.

While you can always count on the Fairmont brand to offer great hotel experiences around the world, Fairmont Battery Wharf just gets everything right. Enjoy

We stayed here during the Boston Marathon and opted for one of the Junior suites in the Gold building, dubbed as a 'hotel within a hotel'. It was actually a really lovely room, with a good aspect over the harbour and had it's own little balcony. I would recommend emailing them inadvance of your arrival, as not all Junior suites have a balcony. The additional benefits of the gold building are worthwhile and actually we never stepped into the main hotel. I like the fact you've got somewhere to relax, and the the breakfast and afternoon snack time was good quality and made up for the extra money to stay in this part of the hotel. The location is a little out of the main area of Boston, but the walk is pleasant and if you like Italian food you'll love it, as you are a short stroll from North End which is home to 100's of lovely Italian restaurants. Overall a really good option.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony if going in the higher category rooms

I have stayed at this hotel so many times it feels like home away from home. Just got back from another 5 day stay for a medical convention. Convention was exhausting but just pulling up to the hotel made me relax and enjoy my evenings. It is wonderful to see Khalid at the front door-he is a gem. Josh (front desk) is outstanding. Gwen helped me with my reservation (due to a few issues) and was awesome to deal with (however she does owe me an email about some reservations in June). My nephew and his fiance live in the North End and love Aragosta and are there 2-3 times a week. Ned, Donna and Graham are wonderful and the food is amazing. I could go on and on...Hope to see you all twice in June.
